Forum: software Subject: How to set up the Ruffle Flash emulator in an Archive.org upload to launch the Flash game with multiple swf files?

Hi!
I found an incomplete upload of a flash game, which consists of multiple swf-files
https://archive.org/details/questionaut_flash#
I tried to upload the full game here
https://archive.org/details/questionaut

The emulator has to launch "questionaut.swf" file (it's a HUD/score shell that loads "intro.swf" within itself if it resides in the same folder and then next separate swf-files 'levels').
How do I make the Ruffle emulator run this Flash game with multiple swf files properly? This post was modified by treetrunks on 2021-01-30 12:14:12

Hi, @treetrunks it looks like you've got further than me. I uploaded https://archive.org/details/keyball (which consists of the main keyball.swf and an additional globzkey.swf) but it won't run. I'm able to run it with ruffle locally using:

./ruffle.exe http://www.globz.net/globz3/swf/keyball/keyball.swf

Did you figure anything out with your problem?

Nope - Ruffle still won't load it properly (but at least the game is playable, when downloaded and played through user's local flash player)
The Ruffle team on Discord has reported that the emulator supports multi-swf playback (though they couldn't specify on howt to make it work specifically on archive.org)
So if anyone knows how to force Ruffle to properly play multi-swf game on archive.org - feel free to respond.

Multi swf is not currently supported, but may be in the future.
